Matrix Karate is too fast, what a weird complaint, eh? Yet, it is true.
When I am running the Matrix drill on the Three Month Black Belt course, you can see the speed of learning, and it is amazing. Logic replaces randomity, and the student suddenly opens his eyes, and we’re off to the races.
And, there is nothing that can match the reality of the drill. The strikes are all hard, the blocks are all tested by the drill, and everything makes sense.
The problem is that I don’t have time to make my student smooth. He just catches on too fast, and one has to validate his knowledge as it grows, or you risk miring the student…he will start doubting himself if you don’t do this.
But, I’d rather have a guy who is real, and knows the fighting connection, than is pretty. When you think about it, pretty is a state of polish. Now that I’ve got him to Black Belt his intuition has turned on, and polishing is going to be very fast and efficient.
Anyway, we’re about to start the next segment of his training, and it’s going to be fun. Matrix Karate may have been too fast, but the benefits can’t be refuted, and now it is time to polish. Check out my page on the Three Month Black Course. You’ll probably understand what I’m saying when you see what my student says in his testimonial/win.
